Mosaic Monday

Here are some photos, from a variety of sources, that have given me inspiration
during this past year.
Some are quilty things but some things are just "quality of life" inspirations.
My thanks to those talented people who shared these photos.


Some of these ideas have made their way to my project table... some are still in my mind,
 being cultivated!
 Aren't we so lucky to be able to share all of this creativity?

And speaking of creative people.
This is a photo of a package that came to me just before Christmas.
It came from  someone who has been an amazingly inspiring friend who
is always full of surprises and an unbelievable amount of generosity.
Yeap, it is from a little elf named Carrie Nelson , on behalf of her
 and our favorite mascot Miss Rosie.
A bundle of her new line of fabric, Fresh Palette and another bundle ta'boot!
So, do you think I was tickled pink? Oh yes I was!
Do you think I did a happy dance... well, yes, but not where
people could see me! hehe
Thank you so much Carrie!
But, I am sure what she didn't realize was that she was going to be keeping me up at night thinking about
what I could make out of all of this scrumptious fabric?????
Oh no... I'm not complaining! If you gotta be awake... what could be better than planning a new quilt?
